The authenticity of our products is combined with a ” Kosher ” compliant ” Halaka ” certification to produce a unique cheese of Swiss quality.
Responding to the requirements of a high-end market, our cheeses are made from microbial ferments, validated by a “Kosher” certification body recognized worldwide. From the milking of cows to the sale of the final products, our cheeses are followed by experts anxious to provide you with Halaka compliant VIP products.
Kosher food is any food authorized by Halaka law, which meets the following conditions:
1. It must neither constitute nor contain anything deemed illegal according to Halaka law;
2. It must not have been prepared, processed, transported or stored using instruments or facilities that do not comply with Halaka law.
In the case of cheese, the hygiene of equipment and premises is also a strict standard. Before production, all the equipment is thoroughly cleaned and kept clean.
The premises are not used for any purpose other than the production of cheese. Conditioning and packaging materials are handled and stored following strict hygiene rules.
Kosher cheese in switzerland
Thus, several factors contribute into rendering a cheese kosher, which means ‘’licit’’, or not kosher, and in this case ‘’illicit’’. For some it is laughable to consider the possibility of classifying all food products as licit or illicit. Cheese can become kosher, if licit additives are used in its manufacture. Without a doubt, if the cheese is covered with bacon, everyone will classify it as illicit.
all cheeses need rennet to coagulate and only non-animal rennet is accepted. Indeed, the mixture of animal rennet that is not kosher will therefore make the cheese illicit.
Consumers nowadays are more and more aware of the importance of the products which carry a certification such as kosher, it is a pledge of quality, respect of the environment and the animals, that is why the kosher products are prized by any informed consumer who seeks quality.
In Switzerland, for example, which is the ultimate country of cheese, a good quality kosher cheese that bares the qualities of any other high-quality Swiss cheese, was unheard of, until the ‘’Compagnie des Fromages Suisses LTD’’ decided to create the kosher category. Which placed as as a pioneer in the field, since it was the first who made sure to produce Emmentaler AOP, our lightly-bodied hard cheese called ‘G’, goat and sheep cheeses and grated cheeses that offer all the special features of tasty Swiss cheeses.
